    Get set for MPC v11!

    08/19/15 @ 11:12 AM

    We are pleased to announce the release of Map Product Creator v11! We’ve added many great features but here a few of the biggies:

    • Added support for the InstaSearch feature.
    • Added support for Address Search Greyout side files.
    • Added support for Garmin Real Directions™. This includes support for Traffic Light, Traffic Sign, and Natural Guidance driving restrictions.
    • Added support for building Unicode maps.

    And if you still have lingering questions about MPC and what it’s about, check out the MPC program overview. Learn about what type of maps you can create, security features we have in place, and how you can request a free trial of MPC.



    Anyone tried it yet? If so, what does the "Garmin Real Directions" do?

    Garmin Real Directions™ with Garmin Real Voice™ is an innovative feature available on select Garmin navigation devices. Real Directions guide using easy-to-see landmarks, buildings and traffic lights -- rather than hard-to-read street names. It's a difference you must hear to believe. Read more ...

    Thanks for the info. So MPC 11 can compiled this "natural guidance" data to be used in the device with that capability? Does MPC automatically figured it out or does the user have to specifically indicates it? From reading, it needs the following:
    1. Map with "natural guidance" data
    2. TTS3 voice capable of using the data
    3. Device allowing the ability (what is cheapest unit with ability?)

    Other product like NNG had this capability for a long time and I tend to agreed with a user comment:
    "After watching the video in the link you provided, I am now convinced I do NOT want this feature. I really don't want to guess what my GPS may tell me to turn next to, and then have to look for that landmark. I'd rather use a street name or route number, as those are easier to locate then a business or something else. As seen in the example video, if you have never been to that particular city, how would you know which building is the Performing Arts Center? I'd rather look for the street name than trying to find out what building is what. To me, it doesn't seem helpful to say to turn at a Carl Jr's which has been closed and now reopened as a Wendy's... Street names rarely change, if at all."

    and I'm looking forward to "turn right into the lake."

    That's the case.

    Natural Guidance restrictions are created as driving restrictions. That is, before compiling, the user must add special additional attributes with data to the source shapefiles for each such location on the map.

    Of modern models, for example, the cheap Drive 50 supports this feature:

    I only found the Info + TopoDemTest.gmap.rar here: Here [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    workflow is in german:
    Von einer vorhandenen gmap-installation werden die TRE-subfiles benutzt zum auslesen der Kachelgrenzen, <koordinaten>.HGT -files
    müssen vorhanden sein und Buildem liest/sucht sich die passenden HGT files raus und erzeugt ein DEM-subfile.
